Must not be too great if they need a stencil. Ive seen some nice work and it was done free handed. Only an amateur would use a stencil. Any 4 year old can color and stay in the lines.

Most artists draw the original work by hand and some also take advantage of photo editing tools. From there they use a machine to create a stencil for the linework. This ensure exact placement for the customer as well as guideline for all the heavy lines. All details such as shading and color are then done completely freehand.

Why would you not use a stencil? The technology has come down considerably in price and even the celebrity artist use them at times, or at least draw the artwork onto the skin which is the exact same thing. Even some porn stars use condoms, that doesn't mean you should catch the herps just because you think you're a sexual artist.

I agree that there are some awesome freehand artists out there but most artists use a stencil too insure that all linework is in all the right spots. Bob tyrell, Paul Booth, Corey Miller, all the artists at L.A. Ink, even the ink master Shane O'Neil use stencils. So now why are us tattoo artists around here lame again?

I wanted a specific font & I took a picture in with me....I was glad my artist used a stencil. I don't understand why that's a bad thing.

Because they cant keep a shop open more than a year and they constantly team up with other losers and open a new shop. Every shop claims to be the best in town but they all suck. I will say Tattered Soul has been doing good but all the other ones shut down and or change names every 6 months.

What does it matter what they use as long as your tattoo is how you want it? I would appreciate accuracy over someone free handing and messing it up.

I have come to the conclusion that you are a very judgemental & seemingly unhappy person! I don't even have one tatoo, but not everyone that does can be called trash!

I agree not everyone is trash that has a tattoo. It is a character defect to get one but you can out grow that.

But go to current river this week end and have a look.. Trashy tats abound!

Character defect.....really? I just don't get your logic church guy....I personally have never found anything that I have ever wanted permenatly put on my body, but always felt that was because of my own inability to commit....I realize that I have changed very much throughout the years of my life and don't want to regret it later. It must be exhausting to be so judgemental of others though. I will see plenty of hillbillys where I am camping this weekend, but it takes all kinds....the world would be pretty boring if everyone was as judgemental as yourself or as careful as me!

No it is based on the concept of hedonistic impulse and the requirement for adulation or attention by others.

A hedonistic impulse is doing something based on the gratification and momentary pleasure you get as opposed to the long term ramifications.

Lack of impulse control is a character defect.

How many times have you been bored out of your mind by someone explaining the "deep meaning" involved with their tattoos? Anytime someone needs to get external approval and attention then to qualify that need with stories to add weight shows a lack of self that requires validation.

That is also a character defect. Oddly enough the original value of tattoos through out history is the only reason rarely used in tattooing. Promoting a group identity. Tattoos historically were not about "self expression" they were about passage into a culture or a sub group of a culture. In fact they were signs of conforming to the ideals of these groups.

Military tattoos still harken back to that and, though I hate to admit it, gang type markings have group value.

Look around at all the "look at me" tattoos then spend some time listening to them.

To say it is a character defect is a kindness for some.

There is a reason tattoo removal is booming.....

I don't believe everyone does this on impulse, as well I'm not sure everyone does it for the "look at me" factor either. I will probably never get a tatoo, but I myself have always been overly cautious which has throughout my life caused me to be considered "the boring chic" always being concerned with the ramifications of your actions is sometimes overrated....I would know. I think sometimes people do it just because they can....however, I commend you on your obvious intelligence. I would label you, as well as myself as Boring.
